In this study, we describe a detection system for the indirect detection of vaccinia virus by DNA analysis. The system uses quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) as the detection technique and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for amplification. Different immobilization strategies for the capture probe on the quartz chip are studied. For the QCM detection of(More)
Francisella tularensis are very small, gram-negative bacteria which are capable of infecting a number of mammals. As a highly pathogenic species, it is a potential bioterrorism agent. In this work we demonstrate a fast immunological detection system for whole F. tularensis bacteria. The technique is based on a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation(More)
